The alarm clock rings at 0530. My father opens the bedroom door on cue. “It’s race day,” he announces. Within minutes I’ve gulped down some toast and juice, and we’re out the door. On this Saturday, about 30 small boats are forming a long tow behind the Beachwood YC’s launch. Promptly at 0600 we are on our way for the long ride up Barnegat Bay. The first race starts at 0900. There are Penguins, M Scows, Sneakboxes, Finns, Snipes, Comets, and Catboats. The sailors range in age from 8 to 90. Many boats are sailed by families.
